Tomato-Free, Pasta Sauce

After hearing great feedback on the tomato-free salsas, I took it one step further to make tomato–free, pasta sauce! All using the nutritious and delicious zucchini we’ve talked about before.
Use this for pastas, pizzas, or a nice dip!


  • 3 zucchinis
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1/2 onion
  • 1/3 cup olive oil (may need less for the right consistency)
  • 2 tsp dried basil
  • 2 tsp dried oregano


  • Dice zucchini and onions
  • Mince garlic
  • Heat and oil a skillet
  • Add the cut, fresh vegetables
  • Cover pan with a lid to steam until tender
  • Remove pan from heat and let cool
  • Add to a blender and puree
  • Add dried basil and oregano
  • Slowly add olive oil till desired consistency



  • GFCF – gluten free casein free
  • SF – soy  free
  • DF – dairy free
  • EF – egg free
  • Tomato free

Now you’re ready to serve it up with pasta or zucchini noodles, pizza or flatbreads, and more!
